Library Mission Statement

The mission of the Northborough Free Library is to provide its customers with a selection of printed, recorded, or electronic materials for all ages.  Materials are purchased for recreation, independent learning, and vocational and educational support.  In addition, the library provides access to materials and information in other libraries or organizations, and from remote electronic databases.               The library also serves as a center of community activity, with programs for preschoolers to the elderly; a meeting place for civic, cultural, social, and other non-profit organizations; and a distribution point for local information. 

Welcome to the Children's Room!

 LIBRARY WILL BE CLOSED MAY 1ST & 2ND                   (Thursday & Friday)
We are replacing carpet in the library lobby as a result of the flood caused by last winter's sprinkler pipe burst.  Because of the disruption in the high traffic area near the main entrance and circulation desk, including application of an adhesive, it would not be practical or safe to be open.  We apologize for the inconvenience.  We chose days that we are not open in the evening.
The Meeting Room and Conference Room will not be available those days (obviously) but will also not be available on Saturday, May 3, when we re-open.  Saturday is when those rooms are scheduled for the new carpet.

BABY SIGN LANGUAGE PROGRAM / Wednesday, May 14th!!

Baby Sign Language with Baby Kneads!    Why teach your baby sign language?  Sign language will reduce frustration for everyone, deepen the bond between you and your baby, and allow babies to express themselves, and much more… For children ages birth to 2.  Registration is required.  Please give the Children's Room a call @ 508-393-5025 ext. 4.  Don't miss this one!!  (Please note there will be no Mother Goose program on this Wednesday)

Be careful with audio books! They can be finicky!

For people with multi-disc players, occasionally a library CD will get stuck.  This is true, mostly, for multi-cd players installed in cars.  Please play at your own risk.  Thank you!

Each month we get many more calls than we have spots in Children's Programs.  Please remember, if you do not show up for a program, you have taken a spot away from another child who wanted to participate.
The Children's Staff asks that if you cannot attend a program you have signed up for you give us a call to let us know. 
If you do not show up for a monthly program, you will not be allowed to sign up for the same program the following month.
If you are a frequent "no-show", you may be held from signing up for more or future programs.
